Everyone has a favorite distro, and they all work, but if you go with 
RHEL (or CentOS and the like), you'll experience a very smooth 
transition from FC3.  Things will look and feel pretty much the same as 
on your old machine, just faster.

RHEL is the most boring distro, no eye candy and no fanciness, and 
that's why I love it.  Everything works and you have to upgrade only 
every two years or so.
